Brian Ashton has urged England boss Stuart Lancaster to retain the attacking style of play that was successful against Argentina.
England notched up eleven tries in two Tests against the Pumas last month as a host of fringe players made the most of their opportunity to shine in the absence of a number of regulars who were either on Lions duty or being rested.
While England may revert to a more traditional pattern of play during the November internationals, Ashton believes Lancaster will do well to make the attacking play that worked in South America a permanent fixture.
"It was good to see England do what they did in Argentina, I just hope they get the opportunity and have the mindset to continue on with that and see where it takes them," Ashton told The Rugby Paper.
"You can dream forever but if you don't put your dreams into action then you'll never know whether you're going to be successful or not.
"When you pick the likes of Freddie Burns, Kyle Eastmond, Marland Yarde, Christian Wade, Jonny May and the rest it would have been pointless to just kick the bloody thing downfield and drive mauls.
"So the way they played was half expected but nonetheless it was great to see them put it into operation.
"I know it wasn't the first choice Argentina team that they were playing, but, as the old saying goes, you can only play what's in front of you.
"It'll be interesting to see how many of those guys, who played a different style of rugby from what England had played in the previous 18 months, feature in the autumn internationals.
"It is a really interesting conundrum for Stuart: how to blend together the players in Argentina with those who were rested and those that went on the Lions tour. To have too many players available to you, who are able to play different styles of rugby, is a great position for any head coach to be in."
Ashton lauded Mike Catt for his influence as attack coach, with the former England international leaving his mark on the team.
"The players take the credit if it goes right and it's the coach that takes the flak if it goes wrong. But I'm pretty sure that Mike Catt had a big input into setting the mindset as to how they should play in Argentina.
"When I was with the 2003 England World Cup-winning squad I used to use the phrase 'freedom with accountability and discipline'.
"And Mike Catt was in amongst a group of players like Dawson, Bracken, Wilkinson, Greenwood, Robinson and Healey who were all of that same mindset."
